Trashing Arizona 

This rape tree, in the Altar Valley near Three Points, holds the undergarments of female border crossers. Coyotes sometimes rape their female clients in such remote desert locations, then hang their underwear from branches as a kind of trophy. The white structures on the mountain in the background are part of Kitt Peak Observatory.
